    'Where there's a thong bikini, there's me' with Nish Kumar

    'Where there's a thong bikini, there's me' with Nish Kumar

    Would you rather vote in Love Island or in the General Election?  Would you prefer to talk about STIs or politics?  Would seeing a politician in a thong bikini make you vote?
    In this first episode of The Turnout, Grace meets comedian Nish Kumar and asks students at Westminster Kingsway College why they’re NOT planning to vote and what would get them to the polls.  Nish also talks about how politicians can appeal to Grace’s generation, the policies that might appeal and they discuss her chances of getting a date with Rishi and Keir.

    GK gets the big guns out with ‘Daddy of Politics’ Alastair Campbell AND a Bum tattoo DARE

    GK gets the big guns out with ‘Daddy of Politics’ Alastair Campbell AND a Bum tattoo DARE

    Help, I’m making a political podcast! 
    As it dawns on Grace she’s making a podcast about politics, who better to speak to than the Daddy of political podcasts and Godfather of New Labour. 
    Alastair Campbell joins GK Barry in the 2nd episode of The Turnout.  They agree that more young people should head to the polls on July 4th but disagree that free vodka shots are the way to get them there.   Alastair reveals he’s in favour of compulsory voting, thinks 16 year olds should be able to vote and says in some parts of the world, democracy is under threat, so we all need to wake up. 
    Alastair Campbell is the co-host of the Rest is Politics podcast and has written a book aimed at teenagers and young adults ‘Alastair Campbell Talks Politics’.
